So, you’re interested in the WoW Classic best professions to make gold? Without a doubt, gold in WoW makes things go round and round. First of all, you’ll need some coins to pay for the multiple trainers you’ll find across your journey. If you’re poor, you probably will learn less than the average joe. Secondly, all the traveling tools you’ll have to use between maps require a fee, and you even need to buy your mount
Gathering professions are generally a good pick for making gold. In the professions section of the guide, we will go over methods to make gold with all professions.
Skinning is a very good choice to go with while leveling and if you farm a lot. If you are trying to get your mount at level 40, you can easily make some extra gold just by skinning while leveling and vendoring everything.
Skinning is also very good for Mages as they can AoE farm and kill/skin a lot of mobs quickly.
Mining is another solid pick for making gold, and especially while leveling. Just mine whatever ore you come by as you level up.
Herbalism is not as good as mining and skinning while you are leveling up, although still decent. At max level, this is perhaps the best gold farming profession.
Enchanting is also a good profession to have, but don’t have it on your main. Have it on your bank alt, which we will talk more about in the next segment.
